Apparently Davis will not play again this season for Notts Forest due to a hamstring injury.
Rotten luck as he was going so well.

Edda, can you help with this one?
It is reported Villa are interested in Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus. If they agree a fee with his club they then have to get the players acceptance of the move and he is away on International duty.
How will they communicate with him? Direct or through his agent or some other way?

{Ed002's Note - His agent would deal with the logistics of medicals and forms.}

Rumour from Sky Sports indicate we are in talks with Juventus for Uruguayan DM Rodrigo Bentancur.
Anyone know if he is any good?

Glad we have managed to get Emi to sign an extension to his contract early.
I was starting to worry we would have had vultures hovering in the summer.

Congratulations Coutino on signing a 4 year contract with Villa.

Now let's get Chukwuemeka tied down and bring in some new blood. Kamara and Bissoma next please :-)


2.) 12 May 2022 21:34:52
BK - What are your feelings about Phillips who we are being linked with?


3.) 12 May 2022 22:52:25
Disagree with giving Chuck a contract would be happy to see him gone every time I watch him he is lazy and seems like he don’t want to be playing. Contracts to phill amazing piece of business hopefully he will attract players along with stevie


4.) 12 May 2022 23:30:25
I'd absolutely love Philips mate but I think there'll be bigger clubs and / or more lucrative deals on offer for him - Could see interest from United and Newcastle if Leeds are relegated, Newcastle would offer crazy money I'm sure and well, United are United and will always attract players. If I was a betting man I'd say we'll get Kamara and Bissoma which would be a big upgrade on our current midfield. Kamara in particular would be a massive coupé! If we can get a CB and back up LB I think we'll be in good shape, I know Gerrard wants a striker as well but I wonder if the Ings Watkins combo of recent weeks has given him good for thought? Not asking much but Hickey, Gomes, Bissoma, Kamara, Coutinho and I'll be happy ? LOL


5.) 13 May 2022 14:14:08
Nice list BK, apart from gomez I want to see a CB from the continent coming in, plus add a winger for when we need to switch things up


6.) 14 May 2022 09:34:51
BK you forget we have Gerrard and by all accounts Phillips has great admiration for him so everything is possible.


7.) 14 May 2022 12:51:24
I hope your right Aka mate, he would be a very good signing - I also seen on Twitter that some Leeds ITK (who apparently is reliable) said he is going to Villa if relegated.I took that with a massive pinch of salt of course but there is definitely interest and you're right, Gerrard will be a draw for players. We have to be pushing for Kamara as well, wonder would they be looking at Phillips and Kamara, similar to how England set up with 2 holiding mids? Would certainly free up McGinn and/or Ramsey in midfield and we'd win back the ball much quicker with 2 specialised defensive players in the middle - That would be good news for Coutinho as well I'm sure.


8.) 15 May 2022 17:40:56
Whack, I stated that we needed a hard c/h from eastern europe some time ago.
Mings is and has always been likely to have a cock up and cost us. I like Mings but he is not a last line defender unless we play 3 and he is on the left allowing a proper c/h to play.

Liverpool have extended Klopp's contract until 2026.
I wonder what SG will do when his Villa contract is up in 2024?

AkaVilla

1.) 28 Apr 2022 20:02:17
Lets hope he is still here in 2024 mate


2.) 28 Apr 2022 20:57:56
That all depends on next season results.

Fantastic strike right into the top corner. PNE saying they’re now worried that we won’t extend the loan beyond the summer. I think they may be right ?

Another loanee Jaden Philogene-Bidace has just scored for Stoke. They are all making themselves well known throughout the country.

With all these kids doing so well,next season will be so interesting. How many will be integrated into the team, if any will be let go . With the fantastic crop of kids we have, some hard decisions may have to be made .You can bet,loads of other clubs will be waiting hoping, to pick some of them up . Luckily with our scouting system, we appear to be picking up even more,brilliant youngsters .


2.) 09 Feb 2022 17:09:02
I think you are right Davedean82 the summer will be really interesting not only in terms of those that come in to challenge for first team places but the ones we choose to let go and I think there will be a fair few of them to be honest. In terms of the kids I think we have got a real talented crop of youngsters but we don’t seem to have a clear pathway into the first XI. You look at some of the other premiership teams the likes of Liverpool with Curtis Jones, Leicester with Luke Thomas Everton with Anthony Gordon all have homegrown talent which are at least getting opportunities our kids despite getting rave reviews can’t seem to make that final step even Carney can’t now is that because all the kids aren’t good enough? Or because they aren’t given the chance? I hope we don’t end up developing talented youngsters for other clubs.


3.) 09 Feb 2022 20:11:01
Hmmmm Jacob Ramsey springs to mind


4.) 09 Feb 2022 21:01:41
In 10 years we have produced two home grown talents in Grealish and Ramsey not a great return really


5.) 10 Feb 2022 00:25:50
I'm not arguing the past lord, the academy wasn't run properly for a long time, different now, the examples you gave are all recent break throughs so I gave the example of Ramsey, chuck is getting minutes in most games we play but the sad truth is that we were weakened when he came on, I'm not saying he does not deserve a chance to prove himself but we can't carry a bunch of youngsters at the same time but if there's 2 of them playing parts in most games then it's unfair to say they are not getting a chance, I think over the next few seasons we will see a lot of kids breaking through, we haven't lost any kids in recent years who went on to achieve great things with other clubs, we lost some great players but none that you could call kids that we produced.


6.) 10 Feb 2022 12:02:39
I accept that you can’t really expect to play 5 to 6 kids week in week out but if these kids are as good as is being said then they should be getting nearer the bench at least. So I think Philogene Bidace and Archer going out on loan will be good to see how they develop and hopefully push them nearer the first team next season, however we continue to hear really good things about the likes of Swinkels,Bogarde, and Crisene to mention but a few yet they don’t seem to be allowed out on loan or getting near the first XI, I am not saying they should be in week in week out but if they can’t see a way of progressing with us then they will look elsewhere as it appears Chukwuemeka is doing currently.


7.) 10 Feb 2022 19:23:01
Carney is getting game time although isn't pulling up trees with it. He still has a year or 2 before he can realistically expect to be a regular.
Ramsey is a regular starter so there really us a pathway to the team if you're good enough.
Other than Arsenal I don't see any other top half teams giving regular minutes to many of their academy products.
Liverpool have TAA and Curris Jones with Elliott getting similar game time to Carney.
City have Foden with Palmer getting the odd runout.
Chelsea have James, Mount and Hudson odoi with Chalobah getting a few chances.
United have Greenwood and Rashford. Spurs have Kane and Tanganga with Dier and Rodon getting sporadic minutes.
We've given Archer and Bidace game time and now allowed them to play regularly at top half Championship clubs which to me says they are being readied for more action in future. The ones in League 1 and 2 you know are further away.

{Ed001's Note - Elliott started every game until he got injured. Not sure how he is getting similar minutes.}


8.) 10 Feb 2022 20:51:37
Fair enough Ed, I thought he'd mainly been a sub and started a couple just before the injury. You'd know better than me though.

{Ed001's Note - no, only sub since injury.}

Perhaps Lord.
I think SG was worried that he wouldn’t get a DM and hence brought Chambers in as cover. After all he did play in this position regularly at Fulham.

Don’t think I would, we would be too dependent on his fitness which would always be a worry.
